  • Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Disappointed

It was completely different to what was on the hotels.com website. Old run down building with little central heating. No respect about noise from the bar down stairs as it mostly went on till 2am most nights. Breakfast not included have pay for it. Not safe to leave personal or valuables items around. Hostel are not responsible if your items are stolen or lost. They do housecleaning but still looks dirty after the rooms are clean. Housekeeping doesn’t stick to a proper schedule. One positive thing was that I got a refund on the nights I was booked and paid for but didn’t stay for the duration only stayed for 8 nights instead of 19 nights.

The location is primo. Staff are awesome. The vibe there is definitely upbeat. Loved the sense of security. As a female travelling alone I appreciated the female only dorm and bathroom option. Breakfast is the bomb. Recommend the veggie eggs benny.
